On Saturday, March 10, The Fugitives will play the Rossland Miners’ Hall to inspire audiences with their unique blend of song writing, poetry, and multi-instrumental talents to create a dynamic mix of modern folk.

The Fugitives are the combined talents of Vancouver artists Adrian Glynn, Barbara Adler, Brendan McLeod, and Steve Charles.

A group of multi-instrumentalists, songwriters, poets and novelists, each with their own burgeoning solo career, they’ve won individual accolades as diverse as the Canadian SLAM poetry championship, CBC poet laureate, and a place in the Peak performance songwriting series. But their primary focus lies in banding together to integrate their sensibilities into a dynamic mix of modern folk.

Formed four years ago on Vancouver’s East Side, The Fugitives have trod their instruments and words numerous times through Canada and Europe. Performances that began in abandoned bank vaults and small vegetarian restaurants in England have turned into mainstage appearances on the Canadian folk festival circuit and sold out headlining shows at venues as diverse as the Vienna Literary Festival, the Winnipeg Fringe Festival, the Vancouver Jazz Festival, and the Chutzpah Dance Festival.

The Fugitives are presented by the Rossland Council for Arts and Culture as part of the 2012 performance series at the Miners' Hall on Saturday, March 10.

Tickets are $20 in advance or $23 at the door ($2 off for RCAC members).  Advanced tickets available at Out of the Cellar (Columbia Avenue Rossland) or the Charles Bailey Theatre (Cedar Avenue Trail).
